Own a keepsake from Norwich City’s promotion parade and support the Depression Alliance

Norwich City supporters are being given the chance to re-live the Canaries' promotion celebrations of last season and raise funds for a depression charity.

Up for grabs in a charity auction is the cream linen suit worn by City full-back Marc Tierney during the club's promotion parade around Norwich last May, after finishing second in the Championship.

Mr Tierney bought the suit, which has a 40in chest and 32in waist, the day before the parade and has donated it to be sold on the Sellebrity website - run by former Canaries winger Darren Eadie.

The defender said: 'I was searching round for something appropriate, saw this suit and thought it captured the moment and would be a bit of a laugh.

'We were having a barbecue before the parade and I got a few wolf whistles and I've never heard the last of it since – it's Miami Vice meets Liverpool's white-suited Spice Boys!

You may also want to watch:

'I was inundated with text messages while I was on the bus but as long as it made people smile, that's the main thing.'

The suit - which is being sold on www.sellebrity.org.uk - comes with a hand-written note signed by Mr Tierney and money raised will go to his chosen charity, the Depression Alliance.

Mr Eadie added: 'Marc is a popular character among City fans and many among the tens of thousands lining the streets of Norwich on that great day will remember smiling and thinking 'look at Tierney's suit.

'We think this is a great way of combining giving to charity with getting hold of something that was a part of something really special.

'Whether you want to wear it, frame it or hang it in your lounge, it will certainly be a talking point!'
